Go to a hydraulic shop. They can make them up for you. One of our local NAPA stores also makes them. You may have to do some looking, but someone makes lines for tractors and heavy equipment in your area.

They have to be "custom made" with the correct curved metal fittings on the ends -- those fittings are what makes them so expensive compared to generic hoses of the same length. The slim metal fittings, bent to the proper angles are necessary especially on the ends that attach to the hydraulic cylinder. There's not much room in that tunnel that's shared with the driveshaft, rear lift rod, gearshift linkage, clutch/brake linkage, and perhaps a variable or hydro control also... This pic from my variable to hydro conversion shows how "crowded" it is in there: [img]http://simpletractors.com/images/var_hydro/full_tunnel_top.jpg[/img] http://simpletractors.com/do_it/variable_to_hydro.htm

I've had them done at a local farm equipment dealer. You should bring in the old ones and make sure lengths, angles are correct. Especially the rotation of fittings from one end to the other. These small hoses aren't long enough to allow much rotation - the fittings have to be oriented properly on each end of the in order to fit properly.

They should be. If not, they won't work. As recommended above, take in your old ones and have them make new ones that closely match -- length, angle of the metal fittings, and where those fittings are in relation to the fitting on the other end of the hose.
